You'll also find a number of services like goldsmiths, seamstresses, beauty parlors, laundries, and dry cleaning.

A good place to exchange local currency. But definitely try soft cream shop outside. Personally recommended the one at the right hand side of State Department Store (1000MNT/per).
Classic Soviet style "national store" with multiple floors, various shops, and central cash desks where you go to pay for any goods you purchase. Good place to buy cashmere products on the 2nd floor (prices much more reasonable than in the brand name stores). The Nomin supermarket on the 1st floor is very large and you can buy any supplies and groceries you need there.
